“Die lang man sonder skaduwee,” so het die oumense gepraat as hulle die grondpaaie beskryf het wat oor die rug van vlaktes loop soos linte wat plase en veeposte en dorpe aan mekaar bind. Dit was ’n raaisel wat hulle vir mekaar gevra het om ’n stram geselskap aan die gang te kry.
Met diť raaisel begin Antoinette Pienaar, Afrikaanse sangeres, aktrise en radiopersoonlikheid, haar nuwe boek nŠ die verskyning van Kruidjie roer my, haar boek oor Karookruie wat sy plek as ’n klassieke werk in Afrikaans ingeneem het. Sy werk reeds vir jare in die Karoo saam met oom Johannes Willemse, legendariese Griekwa-medisyneman. Oom Johannes leer haar hoe om Karookruie te gebruik om mense se lywe en siele te genees en van heinde en ver kom besoekers om hier by hulle gesond te kom raak.
In Die lang man sonder skaduwee sit Antoinette haar roeping as geneser voort. Vol begrip en deernis word Karookruie ingespan om allerlei kwale te genees. Maar nou ondersoek sy ook die genesende krag wat in die ou stories, raaisels en rympies van die Griekwa-mense skuil, want dikwels het ’n fisieke probleem ’n emosionele oorsprong en is dit stories wat die hart kan genees. Die langman sonder skaduwee is volksbesit: waardevolle inheemse kennis liefdevol opgeteken vir lees en herlees.

""If your 'weighty thinking' does not change, then even if you lose weight you'll retain an overwhelming subconscious urge to gain it back. It's less important how quickly you lose weight, and more important how holistically you lose weight; you want your mind, your emotions, and your body to all 'lose weight.' Weight that disappears from your body but not from your soul is simply recycling outward for a while " "but is almost certain to return. It's self-defeating, therefore, to struggle to drop excess weight unless " "you are also willing to drop the thought-forms that initially produced it and now hold it in place."" -- Marianne Williamson What is the connection between spirituality and weight loss? Best-selling author Marianne Williamson is about to answer that question for you in her groundbreaking new book, bringing you 21 spiritual lessons to help you surrender your weight forever. These lessons form a holistic paradigm for weight loss, addressing the spiritual, emotional, and psychological elements involved in what Williamson refers to as "conscious weight loss." If you are a food addict, a compulsive eater, or someone who for any reason sees food as the enemy, this book is for you. "A Course in Weight Loss" addresses the true causal root of your weight-loss issues: a place within you where you have forgotten your divine perfection. This forgetfulness has confused not only your mind but also your body, making you reach for that which cannot sustain you . . . and reject that which does. As your mind reclaims its spiritual intelligence, your body will reclaim its natural intelligence as well. The 21 lessons in this book will take you on a deep, sacred journey. One step at a time, you will learn to shift your relationship with yourself--and your body--from one of fear to one of love. And you will begin to integrate the various parts of yourself--mind, body, and spirit--to become, once again, and in all ways, the beautiful and peaceful person you were created to be. As Williamson writes: "When it comes to your enjoyment of eating, your best days are not behind you but ahead of you " So get ready to begin a new relationship with food . . . and with yourself.
